I find Evelyn Lozada to be one of the meanest, most disrespectful people I’ve ever seen on television. So while I probably wouldn’t waste spit on her if she were on fire, I know she’s popular among many.
That leads me to her latest cover story with Latina magazine in which she professes to be hard at work with changing her life. Yeah, a month ago I saw her continue to berate Royce Reed as a non-factor so I’ll believe it when I see, hear, and read it.
Anyway, here’s what Jennifer Lopez without the talent had to say:
On her feelings after the violent abuse of her ex-husband during an argument:
“At that point, I knew my life would never be the same. I knew the world was going to laugh at me and be mean and nasty and blame me for everything. But I had no choice. I had to go to the hospital.”
On why she plans to start a foundation dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence called Pain Is Not Love:
“I get e-mails every single day from women who are still with their abusive partner and they’re like, ‘I need help.’”
On trying to reform her life with the help of life coach Tony Gaskins, Jr. and being re-baptized:
“Tony was talking to me about soul ties, and I felt like I needed to cut that cord [with Johnson]. I wanted to do things differently, to start over. I’m still going to be Evelyn, but I have a different vision of my life.”
